    Sorry, didn't see this post till today, the forum usually sends me an email. I only got 33-37 mpg on my 03 which was always a big disappointment to me. I now have an 07 and still only get around 40-45 depending on the highways. I am pretty sure I would get a lot more if I wasn't so enamored of the rush I get going through the gears and the fact that I am always going 89-90 on the interstate. The night I rode it home my wife was in the car and was only going 65-70 and the guage read out to 46 or so. Hope that helps. Phil

    Phil, I am thinking about getting a FJR and in my research I am trying to come up with real life gas milage figures. I read some of the reviews that the magazines come up with and they seem low to me. I currently ride a BMWLT LT and I can usually get near 50 or sometimes a little better. these are BMW mps so they are a little optimistic. sorry to bother you but I am interested. Thanks.
